I write about the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Higher education. Research. Outreach to Nebraska. UNL is an incredible place full of interesting people doing astounding work that impacts the world.
And I get to work here.
"UNL remains among nation’s best in 2014 U.S. News rankings."
7 Things About College
The New York Times published an article with 7 things graduating high school seniors should know about college written by the authors of a book titled The Secrets of College Success.
It’s the second edition (of the book and the tips), so perhaps the first tip ought to be try, try again. Seriously, though, some good points here.
1. You Have Control Over Your Courses
2. Every Class Counts
3. You Are Expected to Do a Lot of the Work on Your Own
4. The Testing Is Often Done by ‘Sampling’
5. College Papers Are More Than Just Reports
6. You Don’t Have to Pick a Major in Your First Year
7. The Professor Would Like to Help You Succeed
